Workshop on “Advancements in topological textures”

March 14-16, Messina, Italy (in-person)

This workshop is designed to be a meeting point for topology and magnetism. It will be a forum to bring together concepts and ideas from mathematics, physics and engineering to discuss the recent developments and future directions of topological textures, such as magnetic skyrmions and vortices. It will deal with progression of magnetic solitons in various materials including ferromagnets, ferrimagnets, antiferromagnets and novel hybrid systems. 

Chairs: Giovanni Finocchio and Bruno Azzerboni, University of Messina, Italy
